Kick up your breakfast game a few notches by making an easy flavored maple syrup! These gingerbread pancakes go great with a cinnamon maple syrup. To make it all you have to do is add a teaspoon of cinnamon to your normal maple syrup and heat it gently. I mean who wants cold maple syrup (or worse, artificial maple/pancake syrup) anyhow?!?
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons molasses
- 2 eggs
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1cupmaple syrup

Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and sugar) together in a medium sized bowl.
Add the wet ingredients (brown sugar, molasses, eggs, butter and milk) in a large measuring cup or small bow.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just combined (some lumps will still be there).
Using a 1/4 cup measure or ice cream scoop cook them on medium heat on a cast iron griddle or your favorite pan.
Cook until bubbles just form on the edge and you can cleanly flip the pancake over.
Cook an additional 15-20 seconds on the second side.
In the meantime warm the maple syrup with the cinnamon mixed in.
